Binary Options - Banc De Binary

Slippery Sales People on Binary Options

At the start of December I decided it would be a good idea to look into trading binary options.
I did some research and found the company Banc De Binary to be the number 1 in the world for trading binary options.
So I signed up and out the minimal deposit of $250,
The next day I received a call form one of the employees Jonathan Reed (My account manager.) He showed me around the platform via skype and put me in some small trades that made about $100 in an hour.

Calculating Margins - Gotta Luv this one!


 IG Share margins

From the IG site - Margin requirements for CFD positions with non-guaranteed stops are capped at the amount of margin for no stop (ie if the stop is wide then the calculations used may give a higher margin requirement than the calculation for no stop. If this happens then we limit the margin to the amount required for the same position with no stop).

 

 

No stop

Number of shares x share price x margin percentage

E.g. 1000 Vodafone shares at a price of £1.94:

1000 x 1.94 x 5% = £97 margin

Stop

(Margin for equivalent trade with no stop x slippage factor) + value per point* x stop distance

E.g. 1000 Vodafone shares at price of £1.94, with a non-guaranteed stop 3 points away:

(£97 x 30% + (£10 x 3) = £59.10 margin

* Note: 100 UK shares = £1 per point, 100 US shares = $1 per point, 100 Euro shares = €1 per point etc

 

Guaranteed stop

Value per point x stop distance:

E.g. 1000 Vodafone shares at a price of 194, with a guaranteed stop 11 points away:

£10 x 11 = £110 margin

IG Markets Direct Market Access DMA vs Market Maker MM

 

QUESTION
I note in the past that you have recommended using DMA orders instead of OTC. I use IG Markets as my broker. With DMA orders it is not possible to place a guaranteed stop on price. Do you recommend I purchase DMA orders with normal stops or what kind of protection do you recommend…read more
